Wednesday (September 27) is national fitness day and to celebrate local leisure centres are offering free activities and celebrities will be heading down to Flip Out Wandsworth.

Everybody knows the importance of being fit and healthy but trampolining is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of exercise, but Flip Out Wandsworth is about to change that.

It is hosting a celebrity event to promote the health benefits of trampolines and keeping the younger generations fit.

Stars from ITV's Britain's Got Talent along with musicians from Soul II Soul and The Beautiful South will join children's fitness campaigner and entertainer Amanda Frolich , from Greenford , for a day of fitness and fun.

Frolich started Amanda's Action Club 25 years ago and has amassed an A-list following with the Beckhams, Amanda Holden and even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie snapping up her services for their children.
